Again, joining Ginny for the weekly Yarn Along.
I have been a bit distracted from my blanket squares this week (the tan wool) - I still have six left to go; so am on track with my goal of having the squares completed by next week.
Instead of being focussed (a chronic problem for me with craft projects) I have been working on a cardigan for Ginger from Easy Baby Knits by Claire Montgomery; I picked up my copy from the library and just photo copied the pattern I wanted. I already had the wool on hand as I had previously attempted the simple baby jumper from the book but my gauge was way out, so I unravelled it to start a new project. From my first project, I know the sizes run big so I am knitting the 12 - 18 month size for Ginger with the expectation she will be at the upper end of that band by the time I finish. It is a very simple knit, moss stitch edging and stocking stitch body.
I am reading John Banville's The Sea which won the Man Booker prize in 2005. The language is beautiful and I am being carried along by the plot.
